william v wright elementary school... nats -- classroom and all three of those years she's taught outside of the school building .. in a portable classroom like this one. the school's short-term solution to a long-term problem with overcrowding. "one of the hardest parts of being in the portable is not having access to all the technoloogy inside, you have to walk in there but if you're in one of the pods you can easily send out kids to do vmath whereas here we dont have that opportunity" nicole's classroom is one of 28 portable classrooms at wright elementary... it even has a portable cafeteria and portable bathrooms. the school was built to hold 750 students...this year there's nearly 13- hundred. "it's over twice as many as what should be in this school" but ccsd says a solution is in sight for teachers at one of the districts most overcrowded school. a new elementary school is planned to be built just three miles away -- reducing the
wright. "a school will open up just to the southwest of here that wil help us in 20-19, so we are trying to catch up now" a game of catch up that the district says will take several years. the school district spokesperson told fox5 their goal is to get rid of portables at every elementary school... there are portables at middle and high schools as well -- bu says it does not think it will be able to get rid of those any time soon. police say a lot of tickets were written out to parents during the back to school morning rush. some new school zone rules include no u-turns and no passing other cars in any lane. also... if you're going to park to walk your kid inside-- you have to be in a legal parking spot and not in the middle of the road. parents should also tell their kids about their role in being safe by making eye contact with drivers and not darting out into the street.
parent that you have a conversation with your child and really the age doesn't matter. sit down and have a conversation with your child about crossing the mid- block, about crossing between parked cars on the side of the roadway." another new rule is to stop completely at a crosswalk and not go until the child is fully on the sidewalk. the red carpet was rolled out at matt kelly elementary school-- and students got the celebrity treatment.

actor gene wilder has died. the comic had a career that spanned several decades. more's sean mcallister-- has more on his life and legacy. you could say it was mel brooks who first saw something funny in actor gene wilder. his breakthrough role as the neurotic accountant "leo bloom" in the 1968 brooks' comedy "the producers," earned wilder an oscar nomination for best supporting actor. ("the producers") "no! no! don't hit. it doesn't help. it only i sense of danger." gene wilder was born in milwaukee, wisconsin and caught the acting bug by doing theater. his professional relationship with brooks was akin to lightning in a bottle. he earned his second oscar nod, this time for best adapted screenplay for their parody "young frankenstein." ("young frankenstein") "it could work!" his role as a
gunslinger in "blazing saddles," also helped to cement wilder's meteoric rise to stardom. ("blazing saddles") "yeah, but i shoot with this hand." perhaps the film that endeared the witty actor to many across generations is "willy wonka and the chocolate factory." (singing) "in a world of pure imagination." his private life became public with his marriage in 1984 to "saturday night live" star gilda radner. sadly, after two years of marriage radner was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and died three years later. wilder dealt with his grief by establishing "gilda's club," a home away from home for patients and families. the actor teamed up with his friend richard pryor for a string of successful comedies, including "silver streak," stir crazy," and "see no evil, hear no evil." by the 1990s wilder remarried and kept his career going with various projects. however in 1999, the performer was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. with the help of chemotherapy and stem cell transplants, wilder made a complete recovery. acting took a back seat in his life, and
